ARRC is a specialist resource for acupuncture research information. It is funded by the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC)
It was established in 1994 by the BAcC in partnership with the Foundation for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM),
a research charity.

Aims
ARRC's central aim is to serve registered acupuncturists and others by providing good quality information on
research into acupuncture, thereby promoting and supporting further research into the subject. ARRC
also aims to increase awareness of the role and effectiveness of acupuncture and hence help in gaining
wider acceptance for the use of acupuncture within our health system.

Specific activities and services
  • Provision of acupuncture research information for practitioners, students, NHS workers, journalists, government
    bodies, the general public and others. This will usually take the form of references and abstracts derived from
    electronic databases together with expert commentary when appropriate.
  • Technical advice and support for practitioners embarking on research projects.
  • Production of our own review papers on various subjects.
  • Organisation of annual acupuncture research symposia.
